Avengers 678

Engaging issue which is good. However, it might be that a small puff of wind has been let out of the sails? Sales? What say you?

Just going to limit this, to first thought with one sentence per page.

00 Good cover image but Rulk is in the other city and symbolism just confuses issue.
RECAP: Fine.
ROLLCALL: VERY HELPFUL.
01 Good Torch narration and set up in Rome.
02 Oh yeah, BO and LL are fighting each other and not The Avengers.
03 Is Pietro dead in Rome?! Turnthepage! Turnthepage!
04 Mjolnir vs Nigh Invulnerable? Turnthepage. Turnthepage.
05 He aint dead so maybe it'll be Herc or Sam...
06 Another issue of petpeevingly jumbled and confusing big fight choreography.
07 Now that's "invulnerable" shield - forgot Black Swan was that tough.
08 More clue to Grandmaster's mystery opponent - kinda looks like a Kang glove.
09 Synapse gets a spotlight showing (with another lazy new trick upgrade) - aaand she's still a newbie.
10 Some serious intel topped off with a silly inappropriate shmuck line by Simon. Ugh.
11 Voyager complained about the same teleporting limits last ish - probably just trope.
12 This seems to prove there are only the ODD number of 15 players for the Grandmaster against the combined 12 combatants of his opponent. Hmm...
13 "OBSTACLES"
14 A BB dies - again - or does he if there is a cosmic reset as is the precident with these type games - seriously: why would win a piece means die?
15 Darn those comms being down just because a plot device calls for it.
16 Darn those no kill rules in scenarios preventing global destruction - especially from a Maverick soldier mentality.
17 Really undecided about the coloring: on the one hand a very colorful issue with the characters but on the other hand the backgrounds are petpeevingly crazy arbitrary choices.
18 Oh yeah, back to Torch narration - back to that? Is that a forshadowing clue to prove the online solicit right? Uh oh...
19 He aint alone so maybe it'll be Rulk... decent teasing...
20 On the one hand... NOPE - NO WAY it's permanent! Uhhh... MTiO now on sale, anyone! Cosmic Reset imminent. Voyager timeline has to be a lie. Maybe it is Kang then. The drama now is downplayed to just how it's going to come about. Good prospects for Jarvis. Whew.
